Stammer - The Zone

by Stammer

Published July 6, 2005


THE ZONE is Stammer's fourth album and was released in 2005. The title refers to the close relation between places and music on this album. Places evoke music and music evokes places. The soundtrack of a film can add substantial effect to a film, but more often than not the suggestive and evocative power of music is much stronger without accompanying images. In this sense the music on this CD can be considered as the soundtrack for a non-existing film.

STAMMER grew out of the fascination with sound. Instead of subordinating sound to harmony and melody, pure sound is treated as an extraordinary way of expression. Using synthesizers and computer programs to explore and catch 'found' sounds, serendipity plays an important role in the creation proces.

STAMMER took off seriously in 1997, when the first cassette was produced. Three privately produced CD's followed in 1997, 1999 and 2002. A fourth CD has just been released (May 2005). STAMMER exposes ideas, music and photography on its own web pag (www.stammer.nl)

stammer canot be easily described. electronic. yes. but there's a hint of a strange keyboard or two. compositionally things are strange too. all this is of course positive. if you like bizzar you must try this.

Editor's review DOWNLOAD.COM:
Taking pure, isolated elements of sound and carefully manipulating them in the studio, this Spanish artist crafts minimalist melodies that do something to your brain--bouncing, buzzing, and sparking inside your head like rogue electric wires in a rainstorm. It's subtle stuff you might not catch at first, but once you do, it's mesmerizing.
